Message from the Department Chair


Dinesh Mirchandani
Professor and Chair, Information Systems and Technology

It is a pleasure to welcome you to the website of UMSL’s Information Systems and Technology Department!

Our nearly 400 students complement their business core classes with information technology classes to gain a solid foundation in the social and technical design, development, implementation, management, and security of information systems. Their strength lies in their ability to apply the knowledge of information systems and technology to help organizations streamline current business operations as well as sustain competitive advantage by leveraging technology assets.

With specialties in Business Intelligence, Cybersecurity, Enterprise Systems Development, and Legacy Systems, our students are well-versed with the increasingly complex and heterogeneous technology landscape. With their strong business and communication skills, our students can make an immediate impact on the organizations they join after graduating from UMSL.

In the pages of this website, you will see the pride that the IST faculty take in providing our students knowledge and experiences that enhance their skills both inside and outside of the classroom. Through outstanding research and teaching, the faculty constantly challenge and engage students in the understanding and development of new knowledge by pushing the boundaries of what we know as successful practices in the application and management of information technology.
